Outfit for the Kaffe Fassett Exhibition

I wanted my outfit for The Colourful World of Kaffe Fassett to be suitably, well, colourful. I originally planned on making an outfit using some Kaffe Fassett fabrics and other colourful textiles, but life got in the way, and it seemed a lot of effort for something I was unlikely to get high quality pictures of. So I ended up just picking an outfit from my existing wardrobe, and going for a blue colour scheme.

My self made blue jersey dress went well with an H&M rose print cardigan. I tied a piece of Kaffe Fassett fabric around my head as a headband, and added a necklace with a red jewel to pick out the red tones in the headband.

I wore a shimmery aqua eyeshadow and some deep pink lipstick to bring out some of the other tones in the fabric headband.

And on top of all that I wore a blue lace jacket, with a teal faux fur scarf, which again matched colours in the headband. For an outfit pulled together at the last minute I was pretty pleased with it, and I ended up matching a corner of the exhibition!
